Beast City 1:0 RVS United

We basically showed up with a Beast herd, having 20 guys, only missing our leading goal scorer Noah Keem and Little Matt G. This was by far the largest attendance in The Beastís history of mediocrity, eclipsing our previous high of 15. As everyone knows, it was cold, windy and even snowing. First half going against the wind was really sloppy and it took a while for us to get any rhythm with the numbers we had circulating on and off the field. They had a few outside chances including a nice rip from just outside the 18. Sam Rodriguez made a beautiful diving 1-handed save to parry the ball away and keep it 0-0. Not long after that Bryan Daigler had a breakaway that missed wide. Neither team was really able to create any great scoring chances after that, but they probably had a slightly better share of the possession. HT 0-0.
In the second half we settled in much more and were able to start putting pressure on their back line. We were able to get the ball in open spaces and our forwards and midfielders started creating more and more chances. Good work from Daigs, Scotty P, Hairdo Logiudice and Old Man Matt up top to really put the pressure on their backs. About 10 in a long ball, about 70 yards, was played over the top and Daigler got there first and finished it, but the linesman called offsides. Real questionable call. Ref was good, but linesmen both struggled as RVS had a questionable offsides call against them too. Shortly thereafter, a long throw that Zach Kinnaird tossed in went to the penalty spot. There the ball was deflected up to the far side of the 18 where Daigler finished the ball near side with a filthy scissorís kick that the keeper didnít have a chance at. After that it opened up more and both teams got some chances, but we were able to lock down defensively. FT 1-0.
Good luck the rest of the way to RVS.
On a side note, I canít wait to see what our offense will look like when Noah and Daigler are both playing!
